    These guys sound like "Digital Depot Online". On other forums there are threads dedicated to their scams.

    When I'm spending that kind of money, there's a point where I'm not willing to risk a scam in order to save a little. A 60D is $899 for the "body only" version... pretty much at every legitimate (Canon authorized) dealer.

    You can buy a "refurbished" body either direct from Canon's online website ( Canon Direct Store - Refurbished EOS Digital SLR Cameras ) and I think both B&H Photo and Adorama also have a "refurbished" option. Refurbished cameras have warranties but usually not for the same amount of time as a new camera. Also keep in mind that you can get the "USA" vs. "imported" version. There is no difference in the camera (they're all made overseas). The difference is the warranty. Cameras marked for "USA" have gone through proper import channels and Canon backs them with the factory warranty. Cameras NOT marked "USA" (usually it'll say "imported") mean that it was imported through gray market to save a little, but Canon won't provide the warranty -- sometimes the store will offer the warranty but that means you can ONLY get it serviced at the store where you bought it.

    Bitter, I do not charge....yet, not ready. It just takes time, right? I do have a fb page, but no business cards, not ready for biz yet. I haven't made a dime off any of the photo's taken. OH, I take that back! I made $1.40! I ordered prints for someone and they told me to keep the change WHOO HOO!!!

    I am officially scared, so sticking with who I trust!! This is why I made this post, wanted to make sure. I even read lots of compliant boards on sites like this.

    How about skipping the kit lens to save? What lenses do you have now? I got it with my 60d and I never use it

    Oh and I bought refurbs directly from Canon. I think it was $1050 total but that was last June, not sure on the prices now.

    As mentioned above, it's far safer to spend a couple extra dollars with "real" dealers than internet dealers that specialize in scams, high-pressure sales, etc.

    When seeing one of these unbelievable prices for what I'm looking for, I unconditionally Google "xxx reviews", where xxx is the website name such as "super photo deals" etc. After reading the reviews of many of them, I'm astounded their website hadn't been closed down yet.

    On the flip side, I bought my 60D just before Christmas from just such a site. I did my homework first, and found they really did have an address/store in NYC (A REQUIREMENT in my book!). As I live in Massachusetts, I figured I could always drive there if there to resolve a problem. The online reviews all said to expect the phone call the day after your online order and sure enough I got the expected "buy the 8 hour battery instead of the standard 2 hour battery, buy memory cards, etc." I just turned down all their offers. Two very-nervous -WEEKS- later, I got my camera...new, unopened, factory fresh, USA version. I've since given my business to B&H. Order before 4, I get it next day in MA!

    So, as "Dirty Harry" said so sucinctly: "Do you feel lucky?"

    I do business withe spare few online companies these days. It's just too easy to run a convincing scam.

    For photo equipment, if I'm not buying locally (which I really prefer to do), I'm going through B&H. That's not to impugn the other legitimate outfits out there (Adorama, KEH, etc), but I just prefer to go through B&H.

    Also, the old adage always holds true: If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.

    It's hard to put a price on peace of mind...

    +20 for the 7D. I initially went with the 60D only to be let down. Finally got a 7D and never looked back. Highly superior camera.

    Have been very happy with 60d as an upgrade from a t1i. Although it is not part of same lineage of d series(plastic body, no pc port, etc) it is still a decent camera with good iq comparatively. I personally need a second body and would like to get a 7d. Would like to see more evidence of canon coming out with something in between a t4i and the mark iii.
